The Alfonce Remote Gateway acts as a “companion computer”, i.e. a computer on board the UAV and which controls the payload (camera or other), to obtain a remote liveview, to interact with the path of the UAV (obstacle avoidance, precision landing) of manually or automatically (artificial intelligence) and connect the drone to the Internet or your computer network.

Description

The Alfonce Remote Gateway was designed initially to compensate for the lack of control interface for most commercial cameras and be able to embark on a drone.

It is capable of more today and can also be embedded on a drone, compatible MavLink, but DJI (in development and testing) or used independently.

  • Controlling a certain number of cameras (see below) connected via the protocol MAvlink
  • Gateway UDP Mavlink via WiFi or the cloud (4G requires a key and a server Mavlink)
  • Back MJPEG video streaming or through the HDMI video out interfaces
  • processing scripts of real time images such as : Face Detection, plates of registrations and return possibilities of this information to a server, for example
  • The opening to the artificial intelligence (AI) Computer Vision with the integrated module

The all manageable via a web interface responsive design that can be built into your computer network, y compris via VPN

In a few words, Alfonce the Remote Gateway acts as a “companion computer”, i.e. a computer on board the UAV and which controls the payload (camera or other), to obtain a remote liveview, to interact with the path of the UAV (obstacle avoidance, precision landing) of manually or automatically (artificial intelligence) and connect the drone to the Internet or your computer network.

In more technical terms, It is a companion computer integrating a gateway Mavlink, a media server, features of computer vision and connection interfaces to several types of cameras and cameras.

Control your camera remotely

A wide variety of cameras supported, such as :

    • Sony devices available equipped with a compatible Wi-Fi service (requires an additional wireless adapter). There are over 40, the official list is available here : https://developer.sony.com/develop/cameras/device-support/)
    • Devices supported by the gphoto2 library (about 150, the list is available here : http://gphoto.org/doc/remote/ ),
      • Other Canon cameras are supported by installing CHDK on camera
    • Most webcams, including USB and HDMI video
    • The cameras providing MJPEG or RTSP stream networks
  • The integration of other models is underway, like GoPro. If you want to be included camera, contact us.

The features include (according to the possibilities of the devices)

    • Triggering the photo
    • Trigger / Off Video
    • Zoom Control
    • Live Video Back (Liveview)
    • Acknowledge photo taking (for accurate geo-tagging)

Several devices can be connected simultaneously to the Alfonce Remote Gateway providing multiple live video returns.

Mavlink gateway

Thanks to its integrated WiFi Alfonce Remote Gateway broadcasts live telemetry to your ground station such QGroundControl or Mission Planner (unauthorized in France)

If the WiFi might disrupt the flight controls, you can use other technologies such as standard 433Mhz 3DR Robotics or 868Mhz modules such

Or take advantage of global coverage “cloud” 4G via a key and a server or another Mavlink Alfonce Remote Gateway .

return video (Liveview)

The Alfonce Remote Gateway allows a return video preview with a MJPEG streaming over WiFi or 4G .

An HDMI or Video Out are also available if you want to use other streaming solutions as 5.8GHz modules.

Processing images in real time

At present several scripts are available as standard on the Alfonce Remote Gateway

  • Face Detection (faces and profiles), people.
  • Detection of moving objects
  • Identification of number plates
  • Blurring and / or marking of detected targets
  • Focus applied on the main identified target

Give us your sensing needs and we can implement it !

Other types If you have other needs, please us contact.

Opening to artificial intelligence (HE)

Thanks to the real-time image processing, artificial intelligence integration directly onboard the drone is possible.

An example is included as standard, it is to apply the focus of the camera on the face in the foreground.

  • If you have other needs, please us contact.

Interface Web

The entire Alfonce Remote Gateway is administered through a secure Web interface.
